Who Should Replace Yuvraj?

Well, I’m not yet sure Yuvraj should be dropped yet. He did just score a century recently in his position, but it is depressing how often he gets out in pressure situations (think back to his awful series against Australia in 2007/2008). Of course, in a one-day context, he’s the person you want at the crease during a tight run-chase. I just don’t understand why he won’t come good.

But assume that we’re done with him and he needs to work out his defense technique or whatever. Who replaces him? Some argue for Suresh Raina, because Raina has been prolific of late and has the added bonus of being a left-hander. I personally prefer Rohit Sharma, who, while not as consistent of late as Raina, has far better batting shape and traditional expertise.

Poor Yuvraj, though. I’ve always thought he occupied the worst part of the Indian cricketing chronology, coming right after a brilliant generation that overshadows anything next to it.

    If he could play against England every series, there would never be a chance of him being dropped!

    Top site by the way. Really enjoy reading it. Would you be able to email me when you get the chance? There is something I would like to run by you.

    Thanks a lot,
